    You Can't Even Make A Doodle Without Photoshop These Days

    I decided to draw a picture of one of my lovely daughters but it didn't come out the way I wanted. Here's how it unfolded.

    Step 1

    I chose the photo to use.

    Step 2

    I drew it. (horribly)

    Step 3

    I text it to my wife for thoughts.

    Step 4

    Fixed the lips based on text feedback. Changed the eye because it just wasn't working.

    Step 5

    Not happy with how low the mouth & nose are set, I move into photoshop.

    Step 6

    I move the mouth & nose up a little and reshape the nose slightly.

    Step 7

    I print out the new version but still want to make sure I actually draw the picture so I trace the three most important elements to get the dimensions right (eyes, mouth, nose).

    Step 8

    I draw the rest over and am happy with the result!
